Disney’s The Sword in the Stone was released on Christmas day 1963. Our family watched this movie last May as part of our 2016 Disney New Year’s Resolution. While both of my boys have had the chance to try to pull the sword from the stone at Walt Disney World, this was their first time seeing the movie. It had been a long time since I had seen it, so I was seeing it through new eyes with my boys this time.
We had a blast with our snacks for this movie. We used Reese’s cups, marshmallows, mini M&Ms and a graham cracker with a bit of peanut butter as glue, to make our own Archimedes. We also used plastic swords to stab snacks such as marshmallows and gummies. A bowl of bugles snacks reminded us of Merlin’s hat!
This is such a cute movie that is often forgotten. Wart quickly became a favorite character around our house and this story led into several conversations about the history of England and it’s Kings. If you haven’t seen this movie, or if it’s been a while since you saw it last, I suggest you watch it! It’s a great movie for the family!
